Throughout 2018, St. Georgians have participated in 5th Sunday collections and special appeals for North Porch Women & Infants’ Centers.
This Christmas, as a result of the Advent Light of Hope Appeal coordinated by the youth group and confirmation class, we collected almost 2,000 diapers, 17 cans of formula and 4,000 baby wipes. This collection alone is estimated to represent a supermarket value of over $2,000.
The overwhelming response replenished depleted stocks and helped the many mothers, fathers, grandparents and other caregivers who seek help at the centers in Newark, Paterson, Dover, Hackettstown, Morristown and Jersey City.
The Outreach Committee, on behalf of North Porch, thanks you for your generosity toward those in need. For more information about North Porch, go to www.northporch.org.
